Caithness Waybaggers – 2 May 2002 Walk


Halkirk to Thurso down Thurso River

It was a nice sunny day although a cold wind was blowing. We put the boots on at Braal Castle and headed off down Thurso River. We saw a variety of wild life. Mallard ducks with their young broods of ducklings. Either Sand Martins or House Martins (we weren’t sure which) zipping up and down the river like small fighter aeroplanes, and a Yellow Hammer.


Although it was not a long or hard walk I would recommend it. It offers some different views of that area and is lovely and peaceful along the river.
